We were looked after incredibly well by the team at Big Blue. We did a discovery scuba dive and felt safe and importantly welcome- not cliquey at all like so many dive shops can be. One of us was not very confident and Jerry was extremely patient - kind people with genuine personalities. If you ever want a job Jerry... More

We did an afternoon dive at the twin brommies. The whole crew was great and looked after us, as we are only new divers, and they also took care to make sure we got back to the cruise boat in time. Mardi took us out for an individual tour and we had a great time. The first time that I've... More

Did a single tank dive today with Big Blue Scuba. This was to Twin Bommies. One word will sum this dive up.........FANTASTIC!!!!! Our guides were Sam and AJ. The boys were knowledgable, relaxed and professional. The reef was in spectacular condition, abundant fish life with two of the friendliest juvenile bat fish you will ever find. The water temp was...

Absolutely brilliant instructors. Loved the free pool lesson at our Resort The Holiday Inn. Gave me and my teenaged daughter a chance to try it out before we committed money. On the dive Gordon was so patient and informative. It was an excellent experience. I thoroughly recommend Big Blue if your looking to dive in Vanuatu. No negatives at all.

The staff at Big Blue Dive School were very professional, friendly, and efficient. The dive gear was new, in good condition, and well-maintained. The dive locations were nearby, so transits were not arduous. The coffee, lunches and snacks were lovely. I highly recommend Big Blue and their crew!

I went to the tourist office to ask who I should go diving with. They said 'Big Blue'. So I did. They are conveniently located in town and you load up the boat right in in front of the shop. I signed up for two dives... we did Semle Wreck and Kate's corner (reef). Semle had around 25m viz (if... More

My son and I did three dives with the team from Big Blue, they were fantastic. Two reef dives and a wrech dive and cannot wait to get back with them next year. They also took my wife and three girls for a pool dive and next year they will do their open water with them.

Fantastic friendly staff who are extremely helpful and easy to dive with. I had my own gear with me and even though I had it fully serviced with an Oceanic dealer in QLD before leaving for holidays I found fault with the regulator going full flow on my first two dive. Jerry at Big Blue was kind enough to adjust... More

We had two divers and two snorkellers in our family so our options were somewhat restricted to accommodate both parties. With hindsight should probably have only booked dives and therefore may have had access to a better site. Morning double dives will get you to the best places. There was a bit of a wait between arriving, registering, sorting out... More
